Tolliver (@Tolliv3r) – “Emmanuel”

Tolliver is the son of a Baptist pastor and gospel singing mother, raised in the ‘wild 100s’ on the south side of Chicago.

He’s a soul singer turned erotic electro R&B artist who writes songs about late night parties and anonymous sex. A Mormon gay porn editor by day, his music is about release and recovery, breakdowns and getting high.

Tolliver’s upcoming EP, Rites (Icons Creating Evil Art), due later this fall, is obsessed with the the sacred and profane – the guilt-filled place where a religious childhood meets the realities of an ungodly present.
